    Dominique Ropion

    Dominique Ropion is one of the most prolific perfumers of our generation. He has created many successes for the biggest brands on the planet such as Yves Saint-Laurent, Givenchy, Kenzo, Paco Rabanne or even Frédéric Malle. Focus on this renowned designer, on his history and his inspiration …

    The destiny of Dominique Ropion

    Dominique Ropion was in contact with odors very early on. Indeed, his mother and grandfather both worked at Roure. However, it is there that he spent part of his summer vacation doing weighings in place of the company’s laboratory assistants. Likewise, it allowed him to meet great perfumers such as Jacques Polge or Jean-Louis Sieuzac when he was barely 15 years old. He then went on to study physics before joining the fine perfumery sector in Argenteuil. On the strength of his past relationships, he teamed up, from 1989 to 1998, with Jean-Louis Sieuzac. Then, he decided to join IFF, in 2001. There, he signed many best-sellers such as the floral and chypre scent of Ysatis, the oriental power of Jungle Elephant, the gluttony of Very Irresistible, the sensuality of Amor Amor or the mystery of Alien to name but a few. For him, perfumery is a minor art. He says of her that it is an art “concrete, manual, laborious.” A laborer’s job at times, he says. Like painters, we put our hands in the material and like architects we make real constructions, foundations. Like the sculptors, we have to cut in the smells, file them, break them. A formula can be triturated in all directions. We see agreements emerging. We have surprises. Poets do the same with words. ” Like painters, we put our hands in the material and like architects we make real constructions, foundations.

    The perfect mastery of Dominique Ropion

    Dominique Ropion is a perfumer who took the time to study each of the natural raw materials and who today has almost encyclopedic knowledge in perfumery. Thus, even if he gives free rein to his inventiveness, it is always perfectly mastered. Dominique Ropion has an extraordinary technique and is considered one of the most perfectionist perfumers of his time. He makes juices under a microscope and manages to isolate each scent accord so as to know precisely which scent to associate it with and in what quantity. Thus, each of its juices displays a perfect balance. In addition, if the perfumers of the early twentieth century were deprived of certain necessary tools and therefore condemned to approximations,

    If Descartes said: “nature teaches me”, Dominique Ropion, meanwhile, aims to extract from the latter as much information as possible to transmit the best of perfumery to us. He thus makes his profession a field that is half scientific, half artistic and offers us perfumes with a naturalistic approach capable of seducing the entire planet.
